Safia Akbar, the most senior member of MQM, passed away in London after a long illness

LONDON. MAY 19, 2020:
Senior member of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) and in-charge of MQM UK Women's Wing Mrs. Safia Akbar passed away here in London after a long illness. The news of the demise of Mrs. Akbar caused a wave of grief and sorrow in MQM circles all over the world including Pakistan.
Mrs. Akbar was seriously ill for several days and was undergoing treatment at a local hospital here in London where she was successfully operated. However, a few days ago, her condition started deteriorating and she was rushed to the hospital where she was admitted in special care unit but she couldn't survive despite all possible and available medical  resources and efforts of doctors.
It is pertinent to mention here that her late husband Muhammad Akbar was also an active member of MQM UK while her entire family has great devotion and love for the founder of the MQM, Mr Altaf Hussain.

The MQM Chief Mr Hussain has expressed his deep sorrow and grief over the demise of the senior most member of the Movement and MQM UK Women Wing in-charge, Mrs. Akbar.
Mr Hussain said that she was one of the senior most member of MQM and was as dear to him as his own mother. She treated all her party colleagues in UK with compassion and shared her joys and sorrows.
He said that she had a very kind heart and was at the forefront of helping those who deserved to be supported and helped.
"While ignoring her frail age and illness, she was busy with assigned organisational work round the clock and she very punctually used to attend the Movement's International Secretariat."
Hussain said he had time and again advised her she should not attend the International Secretariat but just for a day per week, but she used to insist on coming to the International Secretariat and used to say to him that, "We can't stay away from you. We love coming to the office and talking to you."
The MQM Chief Hussain said that she was a sociable and cheerful lady.  She treated everyone with love and affection and often prepared food for her fellow members and even served the cooked food with her own hands. Under the auspices of the Women Wing, she used to participate in the celebration of Milad with great devotion and love every year here in London.
He said that the demise of Ms. Akbar has personally saddened and shocked him and with her demise all the workers of MQM including him have lost the affection of a loving ideological mother. The gap her death has created will never ever be filled.
He said that the organisational services of Ms. Akbar in the struggle of MQM will always be remembered and loyal workers all over the world will continue to pray for the high status of the late in paradise.
He prayed that Allah Almighty may elevate the status of the deceased, grant her a high position in Paradise and encourage the bereaved family to bear this irreparable and colossal loss.
